Lethal Amounts and Amusicon is proud to present.
i against i, an exhibit of new work from HR and Lori Hudson. Paul “HR” Hudson is best known as the frontman of the iconic punk band Bad Brains, formed in 1979. With unprecedented speed and precision, Bad Brains took the Washington, DC music scene by storm and quickly became one of the most influential bands of all time, breaking down cultural barriers and creating emotionally charged music centered on the message of maintaining a positive mental attitude (PMA).
HR currently performs with Philadelphia musicians Ezekiel Zagar (original McRad) and Josh Freshy as HR & Human Rights, and is currently working on a solo album. In addition to Human Rights, HR has been in the studio working with with Ty Dolla $ign and Vic Mensa.
“HR is by far one of the greatest artists, writers and musicians of all time, to say the least. I grew up listening to Bad Brains and play their music before every show of mine to this day. I love how HR was always saying what needed to be heard in his lyrics. He stood for something at all times and was always growing to be a better person while bringing his fans along for the ride.” – Ty Dolla $ign
Lori Carns Hudson is a contemporary artist working mostly in acrylic, incorporating smooth textures and a combination of painterly and true to life details, often exposing herself through self-portraits, her work is about connection and loss. In it, she shares where she feels pain and where she finds healing.
Lori and HR met in Baltimore in 2001 where they began to form a friendship. That friendship blossomed into a romantic relationship and the two were married in October of 2012. Throughout the early years of their friendship and marriage, Lori played the role of wife and caregiver addressing HR’s mental health and his worsening headaches. After much trial and error HR was diagnosed with SUNCT (Short-lasting Unilateral Neuralgiform headache attacks with Conjunctival injection and Tearing), also nicknamed “Suicide Syndrome.” HR underwent brain surgery in 2017 to relieve the headaches. He made a full recovery and continues to live mostly free from his crippling headaches, allowing him the time and space to work on his music, art, and marriage.
The exhibit is a collaborative effort in both inspiration and execution by HR and Lori. The private show opening, for which both artists will be in attendance will be held on June 1st at 8 pm at the Lethal Amounts gallery.
